I joined SparkPeople. Which was back in 2013. A lot of things have changed since then and I guess I should change my page because visitors think I still have the defeated attitude I had when I first started. Not at all! I still worry about my hair but I still get my workout in and have to take extra care because that's where I sweat the most and I sweat A LOT. I like keeping these pictures because it reminds me of where I started from. I probably need to add some updated pictures so people can see I haven't completed my main goal which is to lose 100 pounds but I have lost about 70 lbs in the process. I did run that 5k in under an hour and I still try to run as much as I can. I'm still working on my degree and recently started a new job so time is precious and I workout when I can but I still log my meals everyday.

Member Since: 4/14/2013

My Goals:
My goal is to train for a 5k and actually learn to like exercising again. -2013 Achieved

To continue working out despite my crazy school and work schedules. -2017

My Program:
I've got a program through my medical provider, who is actually sponsoring the training. -2013

Walking and running on the treadmill, 21 Day Fix Extreme, and free weights. Gotta stay toned. -2017

Personal Information:
My husband and I are doing this program together but he's a little bit of a "workout bully" which is the one thing that gets me UN-motivated. I just hope we can do this and still remain best friends... -2013

My husband needs knee replacement surgery but the doctor says he's too young. He still tries to workout but not as hard. He's not so much a "workout bully" anymore but he prefers for us to workout together. We're still best friends. -2017

Other Information:
I work full time and I'm a student at the Univeristy of Michigan-Dearborn so my time is very tight and limited. I am a believer in Jesus Christ and it's going to take HIM and a host of angels to help me make it through this program and reach my goals. -2013

This hasn't changed. Next year at this time I will have completed my degree. GO BLUE!!

    emoticon Away in a Manger emoticon

    Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
    The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.

    The stars in the sky looked down where he lay,
    The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

    The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
    But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.

    I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
    And stay by my cradle til morning is nigh.

    Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
    Close by me forever, and love me, I pray.

    Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,
    And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.

    emoticon I wish you a very Merry Christmas my friend emoticon

    "The Marvelous Toy"

    When I was just a wee little lad full of health and joy,
    My father homeward came one night and gave to me a toy.
    A wonder to behold, it was, with many colors bright,
    And the moment I laid eyes on it it became my heart's delight.

    It went "zip" when it moved and "bop" when it stopped,
    And "whirr" when it stood still.
    I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

    The first time that I picked it up, I had a big surprise,
    For right on its bottom were two big buttons that,
    Looked like big green eyes.
    I first pushed one and then the other, and then I twisted its lid,
    And when I set it down again, this is what it did:


    It first marched left and then marched right,
    And then marched under a chair.
    And when l looked where it had gone, it wasn't even there.
    I started to sob and my daddy laughed, for he knew that I would find,
    When l turned around, my marvelous toy, chugging from behind.


    Well, the years have gone by too quickly, it seems,
    I have my own little boy.
    And yesterday I gave to him my marvelous little toy.
    His eyes nearly popped right out of his head,
    And he gave a squeal of glee.
    Neither one of us knows just what it is,
    But he loves it, just like me.

    It still goes "zip" when it moves, "bop" when it stops,
    And "whirr" when it stands still.
    I never knew just what it was,
    And I guess I never will.
    I never knew just what it was,
    And I guess I never will.
